A higher status quo
A development company that is wholly owned by Basildon council has been awarded investment partner status by the Homes for Communities Agency, enabling it to receive £1.7 million of funding towards the development of shared ownership homes across Basildon.
Sempra Homes was set up to create more than 580 new homes in the next five years.
These will be for a mixture of affordable rent, shared ownership, market rent and market sale, offering a first-come first-serve option to health workers, teachers and other public servants.
